I am writing in the hope that this letter is read by organisers of the new market in Sheung Wan, beside the Shun Tak Centre.

I urge them to think about nearby residents when allowing music to be played through loudspeakers until late into the night.

Legislation aimed at keeping youth off the streets at night

Young mainlanders have to return home every night under a new law.

The Minors' Criminal Prevention Law, passed last month, forbids anyone aged under 18 from passing the night away from home without the permission of a parent or guardian.

The law is not a curfew since a specific hour is not named.

The ability of Tung Chee-hwa to declare a curfew and take other extreme measures will be curbed under two bills gazetted yesterday.

Curfew set to go despite rise in IIs
